Subject[ 078/135] time: Improve sanity checking of timekeeping inputs
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: John Stultz <john.stultz@linaro.org>

This is a -stable backport of 4e8b14526ca7fb046a81c94002c1c43b6fdf0e9b

Unexpected behavior could occur if the time is set to a value large
enough to overflow a 64bit ktime_t (which is something larger then the
year 2262).

Also unexpected behavior could occur if large negative offsets are
injected via adjtimex.

So this patch improves the sanity check timekeeping inputs by
improving the timespec_valid() check, and then makes better use of
timespec_valid() to make sure we don't set the time to an invalid
negative value or one that overflows ktime_t.

Note: This does not protect from setting the time close to overflowing
ktime_t and then letting natural accumulation cause the overflow.
